    Similar to a souls-like game - you gotta push through the first few hours of constantly dying in this game. Once you build up your skills and abilities, the game opens up. one of the best games I've played on Switch.

  • Skul: The Hero Slayer or hollow knight, if you can only buy one game, which one would you choose?

      Hollow Knight every time. Not even a close contest. Beautifully crafted world, amazing feat considering it was made by only a few (3 I think?) Australian devs.

  • Best game I played on Switch and the only one I actually finished. Even Breath of the Wild I only got through half the game and didn't finish it. Don't know the regular price but this is an absolute steal for such a good game.

    The great thing about the Nintendo eShop for me is that you receive gold coins for buying games and can pay with gold coins to buy games too. I just spent $1.85 on this game because I had 690 gold coins. Pretty happy with that!

  • Played this when it was first released on the switch and was blown away with how addictive this game is. Might buy it for my son at this price to put on his switch

    Amazing sale for what I consider one of the best games ever made.
    (Also a great indie game made by Aussies)

    Best to get on this before Silksong comes out (whenever it does).

      lol silksong is never coming out at this rate no rush but still a great game definitely buy it I love every aspect of this game

      • It will come out, they're just taking their time with it.

        • True, better like that than like Scarlet/Violet

  • +1

    got the physical version :D good game!!

  • Thank you OP, I was waiting for a game like this to come out on discount!

    Finally finished this after slowly playing it over the course of a few years. Didn't want it to end - just incredibly beautiful on all levels. but an absolutely little BASTARD of a challenge.

    The amount content you get for this price is ridiculous. If you're on the fence just do it

    As a bonus when you're finished, you get to join the legions pining for Silksong to come out.

  • This is tempting to grab on the Switch, but I ended up giving up on this on XB. By the time I get on to play games, it's at night, and mixed with the dark ambient atmosphere, the melancholy music, it just puts me to sleep. (usually when walking around trying to find my dead self to get my stuff back)

  • Also currently the NSO game trial

    • How do you see that? When I look it always says there is no game trial available.

      • Currently in Europe at the moment when I saw the tweet for it.

        • It's in Australia too (click link in OP)

  • ahhh yes got the physical of this game :D
